I don't agree or support a military solution, but lets get this straight, Iran IS a threat to more countries than Israel is. It is a threat to Israel, a threat to Lebanon, Saudi Arabia not to mention its interfering in Iraq and Afghanistan. This illusion that Iran and its regime are "peacefu" is tantamount to ignorance!
"Trying to help their neighbours", is that some sort of ignorant joke? Their support of militias has done nothing but undermine a democratic elected government in Iraq. How is their support of Hezbollah in Lebanon helping Lebanons unity government? Arming a political force, who, as recently witnessed, reign terror on Lebanon to get their own way, this time in the way of a veto in parliament. I suggest you read Hezbollahs 1985 manifesto which clearly states one of their main goals as "imposing islamic government in lebanon", please tell me how that is supporting the unity government and the peoples of Lebanon?
afterall wasn't it Iran that attacked Iraq for 8 years with biological and chemical weapons on mass populous.
If your leader brings destruction down on your head, then you were the ones who put him there, you were the ones who followed him, allowed him to continue, and you should be the ones who reap what your leaders sow.
Iran is Persian. Lebanon, Syria, Saudi Arabia, etc., are Arab. Traditionally, Arabs hate Persians, and likewise, Persians hate Arabs. Persians look upon Arabs as a group of backwards, lazy, ignorant, malcontent subhumans, ideally suitable to use against Israel. They consider Arabs as well beneath them, and certainly nothing near their equal.

Since the spring of 1992 public opinion in Israel is being prepared for the prospect of a war with Iran,to be fought to bring about Iran’s total military and political defeat.In one version,Israel would attack Iran alone,in another it would ‘persuade’ the West to do the job.
Day One -
The War With Iran
By Douglas Herman

The war began as planned. The Israeli pilots took off well before dawn and streaked across Lebanon and northern Iraq, high above Kirkuk. Flying US-made F-15 and F-16s, the Israelis separated over the mountains of western Iran, the pilots gesturing a last minute show of confidence in their mission, maintaining radio silence.
Just before the sun rose over Tehran, moments before the Muslim call to prayer, the missiles struck their targets. While US Air Force AWACS planes circled overhead--listening, watching, recording--heavy US bombers followed minutes later. Bunker-busters and mini-nukes fell on dozens of targets while Iranian anti-aircraft missiles sped skyward.
The Russians are coming to downtown Jerusalem, reclaiming ownership of a landmark with the approval of the Israeli government, just as Prime Minister Ehud Olmert visits Moscow to try to iron out serious policy differences between the two countries.
The timing of the gesture is clear. After years of relatively smooth relations, serious problems have cropped up between Israel and Russia. One concerned Russia's summer invasion of Georgia, which has become a close ally of Israel in recent years. More importantly, Israel is concerned about Russia's role in helping, or not stopping, the nuclear program of Israel's archenemy, Iran.
Olmert hopes to talk through those issues during his two-day trip to Moscow.
